DAVE KUSWORTH ANNOUNCES BEST OF COMPILATION AND LONDON DATE

Dave Kusworth

Legendary Birmingham songwriter DAVE KUSWORTH has announced a one-off London show in celebration of a major new anthology.

 

An early member of Dogs D’Amour, playing on their 1984 debut album, Kusworth began his career in the late 70s with seminal Birmingham garage band TV Eye, going on to found The Jacobites with former Swell Map, Nikki Sudden.

 

The first ever vinyl compilation of Dave’s work, and a taster for a major vinyl reissue programme, The World Of Dave Kusworth Vol.1 & 2 brings together material from his period with The Jacobites, as well as tracks from his own later bands The Bounty Hunters, The Tenderhooks and The Dave Kusworth Group. The album also features a new track from Dave’s new solo album, due for release in 2019. Each of the 20 tracks was chosen personally by Kusworth and longtime friend, bandmate and designer Dave Twist, who was also responsible for the album’s lavish packaging.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
